Lots of brick. A neighborhood feel outside. A monster of a wall in left field with seats on top of it, a live organist, and “Sweet Caroline” in the eighth inning. If it weren’t for all the people decked out in orange and purple, you might for a moment think you were in Massachusetts.

Instead, it’s Fluor Field, the very Fenway-influenced home of the Red Sox’s High-A affiliate, the Greenville Drive. Welcome to one of the South’s best-kept secrets, Greenville, S.C., and its ever so charming ballpark. It’s located in the West End of Greenville, just outside downtown, providing a delightful neighborhood around the park yet also a spacious, airy feel inside.

It’s a neat trick, the contrasting atmospheres. If you’re willing to walk on a little gravel, you can walk all the way around the park, taking in the lovely facility from a variety of angles.

There’s plenty of Fenway feel inside the ballpark, not just outside. They play “Sweet Caroline” in the eighth and “Shipping Up to Boston” during introductions. And you’ll find no shortage of Red Sox gear in the stands, though also plenty of orange and purple Clemson University regalia as well.

The team name, however, is all local. After one year as the Greenville Bombers, the club was renamed the Drive in 2006, a nod to lots of automotive history (and future) in the area. From BMW and Michelin manufacturing in the region to a rich stock-car racing history, the name fits perfectly.

Fluor Field is a versatile facility, not just home to a fun night of baseball. The ballpark includes event space on the rooftop, in the 500 Club, and in the Champions Club.

Make sure to take some time to visit the Shoeless Joe Jackson Museum and Baseball Library, just outside the ballpark. There’s no charge, though they do accept donations.

The Shoeless Joe memorabilia is almost certainly what draws most people in, but the library is its own attraction, and a baseball fan could lose plenty of time perusing the shelves.

The Fenway motif continues along the concourses, where you can visit Sweet Caroline’s for ice cream and Splendid Splinter’s for your classics like hot dogs and burgers.

Reedy Rip’It patrols Fluor Field in search of his favorite snack, “fly” balls (get it?). According to Reedy’s official bio, this friendly frog “was born in 2006 by the banks of the Reedy River.”

Local attractions

Greenville is a bit of a hidden gem, with a delightful downtown filled with places to eat and drink. There’s the Greenville Zoo and Falls Park on the Reedy if you’d like outdoor activities. But part of the draw is that it’s not just Greenville. Upstate South Carolina is a booming area filled with places to visit and things to do.

Clemson is just up the road, one of a slew of colleges and universities in the area – a list that also includes Wofford, Furman, Presbyterian, and South Carolina-Upstate. In Spartanburg, you can tour the BMW plant and visit the BMW museum. There are even driving experiences if you book in advance.

Food and drink

Greenville is bursting with good food, lots of it (but not all of it) of the southern variety. Among the highly regarded establishments are Fork & Plough, the Anchorage, and Soby’s. You also could do a lot worse than just walking around downtown and keeping an eye open for a place that looks interesting.

The town also features outposts of a couple of well-known southern dining institutions, Husk and Tupelo Honey. You can’t go wrong at either.

And if you’re into interesting beers, don’t miss Birds Fly South Ale Project, where they have a lovely space and a wide range of quality adult beverages.

Moving on

It’s a very short hop up the road to Asheville and the Tourists, about 60 miles up US 25 and I-26. The Columbia Fireflies are about 100 miles down I-385 and I-26, and the Charlotte Knights are likewise about 100 miles up I-85.

The road to Boston

The Red Sox system is more far-flung than some, but prospects follow a fairly straight geographic line on their way to Fenway. From Greenville, it’s north to Salem, Va., way up to Portland, Maine, and then a little double back to Worcester, Mass.
